Fire safe sealing of conduits carrying hot pipes
After dozens of years of faithful service, many offshore installations are now in their upgrade phases. Cables which have worn after being exposed to the rough conditions for years are being replaced, and the fire-resistant systems for cables and piping are being brought back up to standard. It’s this latter operation which can cause problems. For example in transits containing hot piping. Beele Engineering developed a solution for this which is not only suitable for shipbuilding and offshore, but which can also be deployed in industry and the energy sector, for instance.

The solution consists of fire-resistant sleeve sections, non-combustible, fibre-free thermal insulation-shell sections (FYLLOFYS) as an alternative to rock wool or ceramic fibre mats. These have been specially developed for fire-resistant pipe transits, and meet the provisions of the IMO FTP 2010 code . The sections are equipped with FISSIC coating with unprecedented fire-resistant properties.

To make hot piping transits fire-resistant, they must first be packed with fire-resistant sleeve sections. Then after being equipped with the coating, the shell sections can be fitted. Finally the complete entity can be finished with a specially-developed sealant which serves as a ceramic protection layer should fire occur. The system can be handled by one man, as the video below shows.
